The right technology

The strategic use of technology can have a dramatic impact on the cost, efficiency, consistency, and accuracy of any document review process.
A multitude of technologies and tools are available to optimise the review process ranging from review accelerators that organise and stratify different types of data for efficient analysis to advanced analytics tools that quickly identify relevant content and significantly reduce review populations.
The Epiq Advanced Analytics and Technology team evaluates each new tool, practice, and idea offered by established eDiscovery technology partners and innovative startups to create the industry’s most effective managed review toolkit.
To aid in tool selection and best practices for the use of each tool and workflow, Epiq employs a consultative, proactive, and iterative approach throughout the review process, utilising metrics and rigorous sampling protocols to provide a defensible approach.

The right document review process

At Epiq we understand that solid foundational activities and adherence to best practices lead to Managed Review success. This encompasses clear guidelines, a memorialised process, quality control, daily reporting, secure review sites, and a global footprint when needed. The result: Legally defensible and thorough processes that demonstrably reduce cost while enhancing accuracy and consistency.

  • Clear guidelines: We help our clients develop a clear, thoughtful, and enforceable set of review guidelines.
  • Memorialised process: Our teams carefully memorialise the review process so our clients can explain any decisions made and steps taken to ensure and prove defensibility.
  • Quality control: Multiple layers of quality control review are performed concurrently with first level review to ensure consistency and accuracy, leveraging advanced searching, conceptual analytics, and active learning where possible.
  • Daily reporting: Review managers provide daily reports and intelligence that help guide strategic decisions made by counsel. Our reports detail productivity, accuracy, throughput, projections, and performance-to-budget on a daily basis.
  • Secure reviews: All of our physical and virtual review centres across the globe provide a “clean room” approach to perform review, ensuring communication is private, rooms are secure, and reviewers only have access to what they require access to in order to perform their jobs.
  • Global footprint and multilingual capabilities: Epiq can staff and manage in-country reviews as required for data protection, business or personal confidentiality, security, or other sensitivities. We have experience setting up large and small multi-language teams across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. We are adept at managing review teams in multiple jurisdictions.
